DRINTERVAL configuration parameter

Use the DRINTERVAL configuration parameter to specify the maximum number of seconds between flushes of the data-replication buffer, whether to use HDR SYNC mode, or whether to use the synchronization mode that is specified by the HDR_TXN_SCOPE configuration parameter.

onconfig.std value
-1 = Use HDR SYNC mode. Replication is synchronous if the primary server uses unbuffered logging.

0 = The value of the HDR_TXN_SCOPE configuration parameter determines the synchronization mode for HDR data replication.

positive integers = Use HDR ASYNC mode. The positive integer is the maximum number of seconds between flushes of the data-replication buffer.

takes effect
After you edit your onconfig file and restart the database server.
When you reset the value dynamically in your onconfig file by running the onmode -wf command.
When you reset the value in memory by running the onmode -wm command.


The DRINTERVAL configuration parameter controls replication latency, and is used to set the replication synchronization.

If used with unbuffered logging, HDR SYNC mode is the same as the nearly synchronous mode that is set through the HDR_TXN_SCOPE configuration parameter.
